This style of unusual soda syphon was specially made by Sparklets of London solely for the French market and was intended to be used as a bar-top Carafe of sparkling water. A thick glass body is covered by a robust perforated chrome plated brass cover designed to take the knocks of bar usage. Chargeable just like a normal Type D syphon and containing 2 US pints of soda water (about 0.95 litres). A HD video clip of this syphon will be posted to YouTube:
This soda syphon was commissioned by a German film production company for use in a period drama/film and delivered to relatively short timescales. The studio requested that the syphon be re-built so that it looked as close as possible to a "period correct" item, but could feature modern parts where these were not visible but had to be fully working. We were able to provide a syphon that fulfilled this requirement, including the chrome plated top-cap that was characteristic of the Type D models as well as the internally installed glass dip-tube or "straw".

This soda syphon will have been cleaned both internally and externally during the reconditioning process and all the rubber seals used in the head have been checked. Where necessary, the original components have been reconditioned but where broken parts were found specially re-manufactured items may have been used.
The capacity of this syphon is nominally 1 US quart or 950ml of soda water. Care should be taken not to overfill the syphon with water (or gas; only use 1 CO2 capsule) during charging as this may lead to a potentially dangerous mal-operation of the syphon and substantial high-pressure leaks. Unless otherwise specifically stated in the instructions that come with each syphon, only a single CO2 capsule should be used to charge a syphon! Each syphon comes with an one year return-to-base guarantee.
